Hey friends! I’ve got some exciting news to share today…Good Morning America featured Where The Smiles Have Been!
Yes, that Good Morning America. A nationwide morning television program on ABC shared pics of my Rowan rocking his yearly back-to-school shirt that I DIYed for him. So crazy, I know!
Exciting News: Good Morning America Featured WTSHB!
You could have knocked me over with a feather when my husband shared this news with me. He was watching a motorcycle race upstairs in our bonus room while I was putting some laundry in the dryer (very exciting, I know) when he got a text from a buddy of his.
“Hey Chris!” he shouted as he came down stairs. “Bill said he just saw Rowan on Good Morning America and they talked about your back-to-school shirt!”
So, naturally, the laundry got postponed while I ran and opened my laptop.
Sorry for tooting my own horn a bit here, but this is the biggest news and feature that I’ve had with this little ol’ blog. I’m just a stay-at-home-mom who blogs as a hobby, and this is quite exciting in my typically mundane life.
So thanks for the love, ABC!
Rowan’s Yearly Back-to-School Shirt
Here’s the item that was featured. It’s the yearly back-to-school shirt that I first shared years ago when Rowan was just starting preschool in the two-year-old class…he was so little in that Men’s t-shirt!
We add his handprint to the back then snap his photo in the oversized (for now) shirt right before school starts each summer. It’s been such a fun way to document the start of school for him every year, and it’ll be a great piece to display at his high school graduation party.
Well, it found its way to the lovely folks over at Good Morning America and was part of a “Back to School Like a Boss” article and segment that aired on national television!
It was also featured by ABC News…so honored!
Here’s the clip:
Just so I wouldn’t get too big of a head about this, the universe decided to put me in my place and threw in a teensy tiny curveball…
…they listed my website’s URL wrong!! o_O
Who the heck is WhereTheSmilesAre.com?!? I mean, my blog’s watermark is right there in the first photo and they still got it wrong! LOL!
Just my luck, I tell ya. My first feature on national television and my blog’s name gets jacked up.
Oh well. I still got pretty decent traffic! Google helped me out. ;)
